Get ready to stuff your face! Saturday, February 9th is National Pizza Day 2019!

Like most other human beings, I am a HUGE fan of pizza. All different kinds! I'll do traditional cheese and pepperoni, but you can't go wrong with breakfast, taco, crab rangoon, or mac & cheese pizza! And I know there are a lot of thin-crust fans here in Iowa, but as a Michigan gal, I'll choose thick-crust or deep-dish 110% of the time.

Despite the strong lack of deep-dish, there are still some great pizza options here in Eastern Iowa! Check out some photos of a few of my favorites:
